Hi, so I know it has been a minute since I have written on the blog but I had major technical difficulties, but don't worry I am back and I am better than ever. As all of my long time readers know I tend to be a basic b*tch from time-to-time (sue me!) so of course, when I heard the most instagramable museum in the world was coming to Miami, I knew I had to get my hands on tickets. For those of you who are living under a rock, the Museum of Ice Cream is a taste-filled and colorful experience that can currently be found in both Miami and San Francisco.
My BFF and pink-loving partner in crime, Allie and I went because let's face it we will do anything for the gram, even pay $44 (sorry to my wallet!) It was a once in a lifetime experience for sure. We definitely took full advantage of all the rooms and really enjoyed taste testing all the delicious treats from a chocolate shake topped with pink whip cream to melted ice cream (which gave my a sugar rush I never need to experience again).
But in all honesty it was a fun girl's day and I definitely recommend it for anyone who takes their Instagram game as serious as I do or has a sweet tooth like mine. As always you can shop my look below and under the 'My Looks' tab. A word of advice, snatch my BaubleBar earrings quick...like I am getting them in every color (sorry not sorry).
Have you been to the MOIC? Let me know below. Well, thank you for stopping by the blog. You make my heart very happy! Enjoy your week and please feel free as always to slide into my DMs or comment below if you have any questions or comments. XO

Happy Super Bowl Sunday? Who are you all going for (drop your team in the comments!) I, personally, am rooting for the Eagles...because as beautiful as he is, Tom Brady needs to retire. I'm ready to see him in insurance commercials or whatever retired athletes do these days. But today is not just an important day for football fans, but also for me...I'm relaunching! 2017 was definitely an interesting year–to say the least–but it is 2018 (oops already February) and I am ready to get back to blogging. One of my new year resolutions is to not only be a better, more active blogger, but also to be more open. The main reason I created #IAP was to have a place to share my thoughts, opinions, and life with you all!
2017. Where do I start? I learned a lot in 2017. I learned about heart break, putting myself first, and knowing who my ride or dies are. Honestly they always say your twenties are your years of personal growth and they weren't kidding. But I really do not have any regrets, because I am a firm believer in what is meant to be happens. I did go through a break up in 2017, and like most girls, when it happened it felt like the end of the world, but honestly it was the best thing that could of happened because I bounced back better than ever and I really learned to love myself and really know my worth. My advice to anyone going through a break up, is to really take time to meditate and fall in love with yourself again! Honestly I had totally forgotten that I need to prioritize myself and my feelings. I am also the kind of person that gives way more than she receives so I really lost sight of myself and what makes me feel fulfilled.
I know I have spoken about being a part of a sorority here on the blog, but I decided to disaffiliate. I honestly believe that you know when certain doors are supposed to close in your life and I felt that my days in letters were done. Personally, I wanted to focus more on school and my future (aka my jobs!) I still am friends with the girls and guys I met through Greek life and I am super grateful for the experience and do not regret it at all!
I honestly am super grateful for everything that happened in 2017–the good and the bad–because it has given me new life lessons and living my best life (how cheesy am I?) in 2018. I am so blessed to have all the amazing opportunities in my life and I am ready to be the best version of myself. In 2018 you can expect a lot more from me on the blog and on my Instagram (I kinda am obsessed with stories!) I just want to really embrace my platform and share my life with you all, not that I think I'm super entertaining or anything, but I'm hoping you each can relate in a different way.
So get ready, because I am back and I am better than ever! Visit the FOLLOW tab to make sure you are subscribed to the blog and following me on Instagram, because trust me you do not want to miss out. Thank you again for all of your support, love, and dedication to #IAP! XO

Hello readers! It's been a minute, but I am back with a post that is long over due but has been pushed back due to me getting sick, finals, and my car accident (I'm OK!) So let's get to it!
As you all know I will not be the first person to say I have a green thumb, but as I have gotten older I have paid more attention to what I put into/on my body. Tampons are not a taboo topic, but are not on our list of every day conversation topics...because it is kind of a personal thing. But I wanted to share about my latest green, organic discovery-- Seventh Generation's Organic Tampons!
Now I know what you are thinking, um Ash a little TMI!? But I will not be going into detail, but simply discussing why I love this product. So nowadays it is more important than ever to watch what is going in or on us because harsh chemicals or preservatives can have terrible effects on us. We've cut back on processed foods so why are we not concerned with femine products that we are inserting in us? I love the Seventh Generation's Organic Tampons because not only do they work well, but they are also healthy and safe to use. They are also fragrance free and perfect for those who have sensitive skin like me!
It is a win-win! You can purchase them by clicking HERE or at your local Target store or online. Thanks for reading & let me know what you think in the comments below. XO

It is almost turkey time! So while we pick our brains for what we are thankful for and begin to plan our Pinterest-perfect dinners, let's talk about some of my November favorites! As always, feel free to shop-as-you-read...click on hyperlinked items (the names) OR use my Shop the Post below.
1. Steve Madden Mules: OMG! These are the most beautiful mules. What I love about these chic slip-ons is that they are perfect to wear to work, but also pair with your favorite ripped jeans at lunch with your BFF.
2.BaubleBar Earrings: Make a statement this fall! I'm starting to become an earring-loving girl again and these are at the top of my BaubleBar wish list. These tassel darlings come in multiple colors and can be dressed up or dressed down.
3. BP Ruffle Pullover: This pullover is high fashion meets streetwear. We have witnessed ruffles take over the runways this season, and here is the perfect item to work the trend in your every day life.
4. Mini Pumpkins: Are you hosting Friendsgiving for your BFF's this year? These chic pumpkins are the perfect centerpieces! I love that they come in a 4-pack so you can mix and match.
5.Kendra Scott Bracelet Set: This trio will have all eyes on you at holiday parties this season. I love their Holiday collection this year...it has so many colorful and bold pieces! This set would pair perfect with an LBD!
6. Sam Edelman Pumps: My OG's know Sam Edelman has my heart when it comes to shoes. Sam Edelman hands down makes the trendiest and comfiest shoes. I love these for work and for Thanksgiving. Let's face it nude pumps are a staple for every woman's closet.
7. Morphe Eyeshadow Pallette: Whether you are a makeup expert or a girl following a YouTube tutorial hoping for the best (aka me!) you'll want this pallette! I love the neutral colors for fall and even year-round. I'll definitely be adding this to my makeup bag!
8. Madewell Velvet Dress: Velvet is always in trend for fall/summer. How darling is this little velvet dress (LVD) for the holidays? It will definitely pair well with black or nude pumps and some fab jewels. I know my BFF Allie would love it (haha!)
9. Gorjana Ring: And last, but not least, this cute ring from Gorjana! I love the rose gold on the ring and think it makes a great Secret Santa gift (for my early birds!) It is also super adorable for an every day ring!
Thank you for stopping by the blog! I hope my Novemeber favorites are some of yours too! Comment below and let me know which piece is your absolute favorite. XO!
